Kaydence was once given a 60% chance of survival. She had a bloodstream infection, meningitis, infection in her intestines (which perforated), retinopathy of prematurity, a hole in her heart, lung disease from being on a ventilator for so long, several blood and platelet transfusions and six surgeries total. She also had a grade three brain bleed causing hydrocephalus which resulted in a shunt being implanted, which she will have for life.
With the help of her medical team, Kaydence has grown into a healthy and thriving 11 year old. She is hitting all of her milestones physically and developmentally.
